Richard Dawkins is the former Professor for Public Understanding of Science at the University of Oxford.
Johnny Ball used to make TV science shows for children.
While he held his professorship, Richard Dawkins seemed to use a portion of his energy to advance his views on religion.
Johnny Ball, on the other hand, seems to be publicly vilified for trying to adhere to the principles of empirical science.
If you ask me, it would seem that, unless he holds that status already, Mr. Ball should become a Fellow of the Royal Society, in recognition of his outstanding, and lifelong, services to the public understanding of science.
